Subject: Best sounding source
This is the best sounding source for this show. The Rolfe one is pretty good too.
Reviewer: njpg - favoritefavoritefavorite - October 5, 2011
Subject: This is a very loose and,
aside from a couple of moments of brilliance (a remarkable jam in Let It Grow and a liquid, mesmerizing Drums), not really very good show. The sound takes a lot of EQing to be listenable to my ears.
3.6 1st set
3.2 2nd & encore (worst Revolution ever)

Subject: Very cool FOB
I have been trying to listen to as many primo FOB's as I can find on the Archive....this one is very well balanced and listenable. Great performance, too...check out the Dancin' and the H>S>F. I think the mics were hand-held since the stereo L&R drifts occasionally. A nice job by the tapers!

Good show....great sound!!
Another quality show from the boys during a very nice fall '84 run.

Subject: If not the Best, then One of the Best 84's
I had a tape of the 2nd set in high school during the years when I first started seeing the Dead (84-87), so it is great to hear it again. This show shines and clearly is one of the best from 1984--if not the best (it is that good). A first set standout for me is Big RR Blues because Jerry rips it at the end, but the second set is a total monster. Ol' Jer's vocals are a little iffy, but he has the Tiger cranked up and firing on all cylinders. Especially love that Jack Straw (tucked in an unusual set placement), the melty He's Gone and Stella Blue. This one is a must-listen in my book!

Subject: Solid
This recording lets the listener tune into the venue and sound perfectly. Great job. The performance is full of highlights, and both Jerry and Phil are listening to each other on this night. One of the stronger Fall 84 shows I've listened to.
Reviewer: SomeDarkHollow - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 7, 2009
Subject: Hot Damn
This one most definitely kicks some serious but, both in quality and performance. Sound is crystal clear and well defined. You may want to bump up the low end a bit to give Phil his proper due. And he deserves to be heard this night, he's a rumbling train of sonic destruction (see the bomb in LIG for a nice example). Great example of what was, for me at least, an amazing tour. Jerry was on fire and his voice had that rough, but incredibly emotional quality that really brought the tunes right into your gut. I know many folks focus on the Augusta shows from this tour, but make sure you don't leave out other amazing shows like this one. Great work on a great show.

Subject: Best Sounding Aud
I haven't listened to each complete show aud of 10/9 on Archive, but after checking the sounds of each, I believe this is the best one. And the latest. Well done.

Nice show too.
